    Will KL be releasing some VistaVision titles in blu ray and/or 4k?

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I spent a pleasant weekend watching the OSS 117 collection. Of the five films, the two starring Frederick Stafford (Topaz) are the best (Mission for a Killer/Mission to Tokyo), these Eurospy thrillers are similar to the Bond films of the 1960s albeit with lower budgets. What they have in common...

    My wife orders blu ray/4k from Amazon UK. Discs from everywhere else I order. A batch received this week included The Thomas Crown Affair. I have seen the Brosnan effort (good) but was first time viewing of the 1960s original. I thought the film ended well, but I didn't much like the split...

    In my latest batch is Caboblanco, a dull, strangely underpowered film of Charles Bronson. The blu ray has an acceptable image quality for a film which hardly anybody can have seen. The feature commentary is very good and it is clear that a longer version must have been released at some time...

    Received Rififi in Paris today (speedy work from importcds). A very enjoyable but somewhat underpowered film, however it's highly recommended for fans of Jean Gabin and Nadja Tiller. Also features Gert (let's have a little fun with Mr Goldfinger) Frobe, and George Raft. Thanks as always to KL...

    Thanks for the many blu ray's of Mario Bava films. Is there any intention to release I Vampiri (1957)?

    Among my recent KL purchases was Picture Mommy Dead. It's a so-so story (although with a great cast) but the image quality is extraordinary, one of the best catalogue titles I have ever seen.

    Watched the Lisbon blu-ray this week. The first time I have seen it in the correct OAR. Good film with good (unrestored) image quality and an informative commentary. Thanks Kino.

    Watched The Man Who Died Twice blu-ray, the first time I have seen this film. Very impressive b&w cinematography and although a small and very short film, another winner from KL.

    The blu-ray of 23 Paces to Baker Street is superb and has far exceeded my expectations. Quite simply one of the best blu-rays of a 1950's CinemaScope film.

    The Satan Bug has been reviewed on DVDBeaver and the screen caps look really good. A huge improvement over the DVD.

    Thanks for releasing Foreign Intrigue on blu-ray which I watched last night. This is only the second time I have seen this film (on television years ago) and I really enjoyed the presentation. The colour and cinematography reminded me of another film I would like to see on blu-ray, Lisbon (Ray...
